Nicholas P. Trist to Virginia J. Randolph Trist, 1 Mar. 1829

When did I write to you last? for I took no note of, and don’t recollect the time. I have been intending to do so again, a day or two before, and ever since, Ben’s arrival with the books. But, what with the business of the office, what with having to attend at the auction room from after dinner...

Nicholas P. Trist to Virginia J. Randolph Trist, 12 Mar. 1829

I have been waiting several days, dearest, in the expectation of having time to write you a letter; but I must not let this post pass, if I send only a line. I literally have not had time to write. The branch permanently assigned to me makes this the busiest time of the year; & it will...

You shd not, Dearest, have allowed anything to keep me so long witht hearing from you. On sunday, I postponed my letter one post from my having written during the week, & from the conviction that I shd myself receive one the next morning. I walked to the p.o. in this assurance: but was...

Martha Jefferson Randolph to Nicholas P. Trist, 16 Oct. 1829

It was so late monday evening when I received your letter that it was impossible to answer it by that mail. but Jefferson wrote to Col Peyton by the next to forward 100$ and I intended writing by the same to you to let you know what I had done; but was detained by company till too late which was...

About ten or Eleven days ago, my dear Virginia, Mama went to bed complaining of a soreness of her stomach, but would not take any thing; Mary & myself who sleep in the room with her at Edgehill went also to bed and to sleep; the next morning she told us she had been in violent pain almost the...

Cornelia J. Randolph to Virginia J. Randolph Trist, 22 Aug. 1831

This is your birthday, dear Virginia, and sorry am I that you are not here with us as you hoped you would be. I should have liked so much if we could have all spent it up at Monticello together. as it is when we do go there I fear it will be after Dr Barclay has taken possession & it will be...

I received a few days ago the inclosed letter with its contents, which I beg leave to submit for yr perusal & consideration. My labours have been such as to prevent my waiting on you, & having the honor and pleasure of doing in person, what I now do by letter. Be so good as to inclose me...

Cornelia J. Randolph to Virginia J. Randolph Trist, 11 Aug. 1833

I must try & make out to write a short letter to my dear Virginia although I am tired & indisposed to write. Lewis has had a fever & headach for the last two days; Mama has not yet thought it necessary to send for the doctor; she would have done so this morning if he had not been...

I despatched a letter to you yesterday, dearest Nicholas, and in the evening Mr. Van Buren informed us of the defeat of Brother Jeff. & Mr. Rives. The news came to him in a letter from Mr. W. Rives, who says the belief is that when a scrutiny of the polls takes place the number of bad votes...

Joseph Coolidge to Nicholas P. Trist, 6 Mar. 1838

My Boy has arrived safe, and many thanks to you, and dear Virginia, for your care of him: to this, and the change of climate, we probably owe his life; and, after he has been turned out loose, to run wild, as a colt, in the Albemarle hills, I firmly count on his becoming in time a Man! I have...

Virginia J. Randolph Trist to Cornelia J. Randolph, 22 Dec. [1860]

I recieved your letter last night and hope the directions for the pudding may reach you to-morrow mornging. I have just recovered from a sick head-ache but feel well except rather weak.

In my hurried retreat from the ‘old homestead,’ I omitted to procure the description boundaries &c of the Lot whc I sold to My sister Eliza, and as you are her agent in business matters, I write to inform you of the cause of delay in forwarding as promised, the relinquishment of Dower. Send...

Francis Eppes to Eliza Eppes, 21 Mar. 1864

I was rejoiced to hear from Mary a few days ago that you are much improved in health, and I trust that this will find you at Saratoga, enjoying that quiet and freedom from household duties, so essential to one in yr. enfeebled condition. It is the one thing needful for you my dear Sister; the one...

Nicholas W. Eppes to Eliza Eppes, 23 Mar. 1864

I am going to make one more effort to revive our correspondence, which I hope will be more sucessful than those through the past winter. It seems as though some unwonted fate had attended every effort to acquaint my dearly loved relatives of Mill Brook, with my whereabouts, since I have been...

Sarah N. Randolph to Cornelia J. Randolph, 7 December 1865

Your letter was received not quite a fortnight ago. We had been wondering that you did not write, as you had said in your letter to sister Ellen that you were going to write and you had never answered my letter sent you by Algernon last summer. It is no wish of ours that our intercourse should...
